You have the perfect dress for your wedding but you are still in need of a perfect bridal slip. If this is your circumstance, we are here to help you choose the perfect bridal slip by providing you a few how-tos. Get started.
A Bridal slip is used to add fullness to your wedding dress. There are two types of wedding slips – petticoat and hoop skirt. The petticoat slip has layers of tulle fabric to give your wedding dress complete fullness. A hoop skirt slip uses a plastic or metal hoop to add shape. The hoop skirt slip is very lightweight and perfect for warm wedding settings.
If you are not sure which is best for you, do the following steps when picking a slip:
Measure the Dress
You should measure the hem circumference of your dress to decide whether you need a petticoat or hoop skirt. Measuring tape should be used to measure from side-seam to side-seam. You should double that measurement. This will give you an estimate of how much additional fullness you will need.
Know The Right Fullness
Once you know the hem circumference of your dress, you can review the petticoat fullness guide. Never select a slip fuller than your wedding dress (exception: If you have a heavy silk or satin wedding dress).
A little fullness petticoat has a circumference can range from 94” to 125” inches. It is appropriate for A-line dresses. You can even use it for bridesmaid dresses.
A medium fullness petticoat circumference can range from 128” to 157” inches. It often starts below the hips and down to the hemline. It can be used for A-line and Dropped waist style dresses.
A mega full slip circumference ranges from 191” to 220” inches. This slip has the greatest amount of fullness you can have for a slip. It should be worn for wedding dresses that flare out at the waistline. It is also a perfect slip for Quinceanera dresses.
